Cameron Blasts Harry Potter 3D errorPosted: November 4, 2010
I only found out today that Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1 will in fact NOT be 3D because they decided to make it 3D last minute and threw money at it. And out of all the directors in the world to scrutinise this is James Cameron, the creator of the most profitable film ever, which was in perfect 3D, Avatar, he also broke records previously with the Titanic. Easy for him to have ago at companies about 3D when he set the bench mark isn’t it Mr Cameron, but thankfully Part 2 will be in 3D. The BBC has quoted him saying ‘I maintain you can’t do a good conversion of a two-hour movie with high quality in a few weeks like they tried to do with Clash Of The Titans‘. He seems rather passionate about 3D films. Maybe he’s still bitter that his ex wife beat him to the best film award at the Oscars…Joking of course. But he does have a point and I will stress this, why the sudden flux of 3D films, 3D was created along time ago and it seems now they are churning out 3D films for fun. I’m sick of going to see trailers for them to only hype up the 3D in film, yes, I know what 3D films look like thank you, what about the quality of the storyline? The acting? The scenes? Why do they feel the need to bring out 3D for nearly everything now. Did Inception need 3D?
I don’t want to rant too much because 3D does work with some films I just think they are hyping it up too much, it puts ticket prices up I suppose so it does have a financial incline for the film industry.
